During the holiday break, the Kramer family was able to make a quick stop into Austin before getting into San Antonio to spend Christmas with the family. We took advantage of our time in Austin with eating as much BBQ as we could intake. Valentina’s was among the stops.
We came to Valentina’s for dinner. So, unfortunately, the whole menu wasn’t available.
What we ordered
Appetizer – Queso ($3.50)
Eleni – Taco : Cerveza Beef Fajita ( $6.00) & Bottled soda ($2.00)
Jacob – Chopped Biscuit Sandwich. ( $8.50) & Topo Chico ($2.00)
Although in pictures it looks like Valentina’s has an indoor seating area it doesn’t. Its a food truck with fancy covered seating. So it is dog-friendly.
The first thing we got was the delicious queso. I might be over exaggerating the impressiveness of said queso because we live in OKC and there’s a void of even decent queso, but it was at least good queso.
Jacob’s meal highlights
I got the Chopped Biscuit Sandwich. This sandwich was tasty! The brisket was juicy, had excellent bark and was extremely flavorful.
The bun was toasted, light and flaky. I poured some of the queso on top of the brisket sandwich and it made it even better.
Overall, this place was decent but I wouldn’t go out of my way to return.
Heim is still my top dog.
Eleni’s meal highlights
I got the Cerveza Beef taco. Have to say, extremely underwhelmed and unimpressed considering we spent $6 for essentially what was a single street taco
The taco dripped way too much juicy and made an awkward decision of not putting it down on my plate for fear the tortilla would rip of sogginess.
I have to side with the husband and say Heim is still my favorite. I don’t think I’ll ever have an itch to go back to Valentina’s. We give this place a solid 3.
